display screen


hi
i'm using kde3.4 with kernel 2.6.15 and nvidia ge force ti8200 and view sonix va720 17"
i already install nvidia package

why does my display seem a bit off, like everything is shifted to the right and there is about .5" empty part of the left of my screen(just black)

Thank You

Is your monitor centred correctly (using the buttons on the monitor itself)?

Is Xorg setup for your monitor, or is it using a generic one? Have a look in (I think) the KDE Control Centre, and see if you can adjust the monitor settings there.

i believed my monitor is centered correctly because on windows i see it normal.

"Is Xorg setup for your monitor, or is it using a generic one?" i don't know for sure, how can i check this? is it on control center, is it on dispaly. I couldn't find it on control centre

Thank You

Try running xorgconfig as root, and make sure that you select your monitor settings according to the manual.
